2 PETER 1:1-2 NLT

This letter is from Simon Peter, a slave and apostle of Jesus Christ. I am writing to you who share the same precious faith we have. This faith was given to you because of the justice and fairness of Jesus Christ,

our GOD and Savior.

May GOD give you more and more grace and peace as you grow in your knowledge of GOD, Jesus our LORD.

DO I NEED THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT?

MATTHEW 3:11 NLT

"I baptize with water those who repent of their sins and turn to GOD. But someone is coming soon who is greater than I am—so much greater that I’m not worthy even to be his slave and carry his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire."

But I thought Salvation was all I need

ACTS 19:1-2 NLT

While Apollos was in Corinth, Paul traveled through the interior regions until he reached Ephesus, on the coast, where he found several believers. "Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?" he asked them.

“No," they replied, "we haven’t even heard that there is a Holy Spirit."

Just because you haven’t heard the NEXT that Jesus has for you,

doesn't mean you’ve received all there is

WHEN I HEAR TRUTH I HAVE THE CHOICE TO RESPOND

When I respond, GOD always confirms His Word

ACTS 19:5-6 NLT

As soon as they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the LORD Jesus. Then when Paul laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in other tongues and prophesied.

Is there more beyond receiving Salvation?

NEVER SETTLE

ACTS 1:8 NLT

“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Where do I start?

 

1. Receive the Gift

ACTS 2:38 NLT

Peter replied, "Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to GOD, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christfor the forgiveness of your sins. THEN you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."

 

2. Start using your Gift

2 TIMOTHY 1:6-7 NKJV

…Stir up the gift of GOD which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For GOD has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
